Straigthen, strip and cut machine
for the rapid production of insulated straight bars for armature and rotor manufacture
The SSC line is designed to strip insulation from the ends of preinsulated copper conductor (supplied on a drum) and deliver them as cut lengths.
A drum of insulated conductor is fed from the pay-off drum stand and through the straightening unit. The conductor is then
pulled through the brush unit stripping the insulation with a counter rotating brush set.
The conductor is pulled through the machine by the caterpillar to a pre-set distance to the second brush unit and the next set of counter-rotating brushes. The
hydraulic guillotine cuts the conductor to length and drops the strip into the collection tray.
The tray indexes after each cut cycle, continuously delivering the final product to the pre-set total length and stripped end lengths.
The SSC line compromises the following modules:
Pay-off Drum Stand
Brush Stripping & Clean Unit
Guillotine Cut Station
Delivery Chute/Collection Bench
HMI Control System
Ridgway BTU 100
Band Tension Unit
Designed to apply preset tension to tapes and wires when banding armatures.
Up to 680 kg (1500 lbs)
Maximum tape width
Maximum wire diameter
TS Traversing Saddle
1500mm as standard
Custom lengths available
The BTU100 accepts glass fibre tape up to 30mm wide and both round and flat steel wire.
Traversing saddle shown with band tension unit
This capstan tension unit is a fabricated steel frame forming a rigid structure onto which all other components are mounted. Four fixing holes are included to fix the unit to the floor.
A capstan wheel is mounted onto a shaft to which a brake disk is mounted for a
pressure regulated brake calliper unit. Increasing the air pressure increases the brake strength thus increasing the tension of the conductor between the tensioner and the next machine in the line.
Fleeting wheels are fitted around the capstan wheel to push the cable across the wheel as it rotates.
The wheel is guarded all around with an interlocked access door fitted to the front
of the unit.
Available in two sizes
Pneumatic brake override
Adjustable guide rollers
Variable tension control
Center line height can be customised to suit exact requirements
Capstan Tension Unit
For optimum conductor control a range of pneumatically actuated single or double capstan tension units are available.
